As with any academic journal there is a lot of pretentious waffle in here, but also some real gems. I came to this collection looking for George M Stratton's fascinating work on what happens to vision if the image on the retina is no longer reversed up-down and left-right, as it normally is, but is forced to be uninverted using special glasses.
His account is in two parts (on pages 341-360 and 463-481) and is riveting -- very different from the kind of text I'd expect in an academic psychology text from the end of the 1800s.
It's best to read the original page images, which are very clear and easy to read, rather than the OCR'ed text, because even though the plain text has few errors, it omits italics and m-dashes, both of which add meaning to the account.
I am very grateful for the opportunity to read this amazing piece. Thank you to the original scanners and to the folks at archive.org. This is a great example of why archive.org matters so much and why it deserves your donations.
